Diane Bish began her world-famous telecasts thirty-five years ago, in 1982 (coincidentally the same years as the first offerings of Pipedreams!). All organ performances here feature Diane Bish. Those in the Hour 1, and the Gordon Young selection in Hour 2, were taken from compact discs in the Joy of Music catalog, and are available on CD. The remaining performances in Hour 2 were recorded in concert (r. 4/29/16) by Ms. Bish and the Marble Choir & Brasses, and the Festival of Voices, led by resident musician Kenneth Dake, and feature the new 2015 Glück pipe organ(IV/101-ranks) at Marble Collegiate Church, New York City.
